You want to hear something crazy? I was talking to a friend of mine who has a son in college in Germany. The tuition is $100.00 a semester for medical school! And that same friend is sending her daughter to school for journalism in Vienna. Her daughter's tuition is $16.50. The cost of housing is about $500.00 per month. What is WRONG with the American system that we charge SO MUCH for an education? It makes getting an education unattainable for so many! Many people are so in debt when they get out of school, and STILL can not find employment. What are we doing that is so wrong? Of course, I know these systems track kids (like we don't) and they do not allow lower level kids to go to college. But should lower level kids go to college? Are they prepared for the challenges? Instead they are tracked into a trade. Is that so bad? I don't know... what are your thoughts???
